Bea Alonzo is now a proud owner of an apartment in Madrid, Spain. The actress shared the *exciting* news with her followers in her 100th vlog entry on YouTube.
According to Bea, it has always been her "dream" to have a home in Spain for herself and her family.
"I love Spain," she said. "Because of the pandemic, naisip ko na you only live once so I have to go for it. This past year, I have been looking for an apartment. Nag-umpisa lang yan sa pag tingin-tingin sa Internet. Kaya ko ba? Kaya ba ng budget ko? Nakakatakot ba? Ano ba yung mga rules? Mahirap ba?"
While doing her research, Bea learned about Spain's Golden Visa, which led her to decide to finally buy an apartment. According to schengenvisainfo.com, a Golden Visa is a "residence visa issued to a non-EU national who intends to make a significant investment in the Spanish economy. The visa offers the holder and their family members residency in Spain and visa-free access to the Schengen Zone."
"If you have a Golden Visa, instantly, you will become a resident," she explained.
In March 2022, the actress went on a short but sweet trip to Spain to go apartment-hunting!
In her vlog, Bea showed the six apartments that she considered. Later on, she revealed that she went for the two-bedroom home located in Chamberi.
Sharing what she loves about the apartment, she said: "I really like the interior. I like the material that [they] used doon sa entire apartment. Alam ko na hindi substandard 'yung materials na ginamit. I like the design of it all. I actually found the charm in it na pag pasok mo pa lang, pwede ka na mag entertain."
We can't wait for the full apartment tour!
